Port of Bundaberg strives ahead

16 June 2017

Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) management and key stakeholders from the Bundaberg Region gathered this week to celebrate the regions success with the launch of the Port of Bundaberg, Positioned for Success booklet.

The marketing booklet, Port of Bundaberg, Positioned for Success, was created by GPC in conjunction with Bundaberg Regional Council and the Department of State Development.

Port of Bundaberg Manager, Jason Pascoe said the purpose of the document was to attract new business to the region by encompassing the regions capabilities, attractions and facilities in one document.

“The Port of Bundaberg is at an exciting stage of growth with the $70M Knauf development under construction, the completion of the gas pipeline and the announcement earlier this year from the Queensland Government of the new State Development Area,’ he said.

“GPC is continually working with the government, industry and the community to explore development opportunities within the Port of Bundaberg.

“In support of this growth at the Port of Bundaberg, it is timely to promote the Bundaberg region as a place to invest, work, stay and live.”

GPC acquired the Port of Bundaberg in November 2009 and has continued to explore new opportunities for the port.

Since acquiring the asset and investing in the port the throughput has almost doubled to over 500,000 tonnes annually.

GPC has also made a strong commitment to the Bundaberg community contributing close to $200,000 into community organisations and initiatives.
